So I just won another player on Yahoo Auction but they only done a power test and it did turned on but no further test.
Is it a great early player?

I heard that this thing will play anything even the GM discs and some troubled DiscoVision titles.
The HeNe tube laser and the player's top loader design supposed to make it more reliable but after 35+ years? I don't know...
But at least I won't have some nagging issues with tray problems that most players had.
That video out port in the back,is it composite or I need some kind adapter to make it work?
If this thing works then I would buy some DiscoVision movies.

The LD-600 is the Japanese equivalent of the LD-660. If the laser still fires, it's probably ok. The Video Out is a standard composite video signal, but it is on an F-Type coax connector. You'll need an adapter to convert it to the standard RCA plug.

You could have just bought the Discovision movies, they play in all players.
Still nice to have another working player.

Well my 2070 is barely working and V2600 is collecting dust.
This LD-600 being power tested only so there's 40% chance that this will work.
I'll get some Disney's early Discovision titles just hope I don't run into rotted disc...

Those Disney discs are nice when the PQ is clean.

The harder ones for me to find were the Chip and Dale and the Uncle Scrooge?? The Donald was fine and Mickey is very easy to find.
I did luck out on Coyote's Lament, that's really the best of the bunch.

I don’t have a lot of discovison discs and I’ve never had the motivation to get any more (most are crap transfers, crap covers, rot potential is high, basically “Disco” translates to “avoid” to me) but I’ve never had an issue playing them on any LD player since they are after all the exact same format.

I’ve also never had an issue with a stuck tray. Try buying players from people who actually use them. Stuff that’s been sitting on a shelf unused for 20 years is much less likely to function.
